How bad is stripping your hair?

I recently dyed pure copper twice onto my already dyed red hair. I've just started a new job (unexpected) and now have to change to to a neutral colour - I'm thinking a strawberry blonde, but have no idea how to do this. I'm going to get it done professionally, but want to know my options - I fear it may have to be stripped.

Hi there.
You probably won't need to have your hair stripped. I only ever do this if the hair is blck or the person wanting it done doesnt want to lighten their hair gradually. You culd go for a set of highlights with a colour inbetween to kill the copper. Or just go for an all over dark. It depends what you would like to achieve. Like brendalee said, speak to the colourist, give them as much info as possible so they know what you would like your end result to be!
Good luck

hello . i really do not think you need to strip your colour out , i would recommend that you have loads of hi lites , @ solo we use color graphics using a green pure pigment which reduces the redness or any oranges in the hair leaving the hair in good condition and gets you to your strawberry blonde. The team at Solo Hair & Beauty wishes you all the best in your new job and we do hope you find this helpfull. Love from the Team.
Hi It's possible a colour eraser can be used but you need to prepared to devote a day to this as it sometimes needs to be done several times to get the result you like, this is less damaging than stripping the colour out. A good salon would offer you a free consultation and explain what they can offer and estimate how much this will cost you, we charge an hourly rate for this.
Depending on the length of your hair there may be other options.
Hi Jessie,
My advice would be that you would need to have your hair cleansed and then lifted up to a strawberry blonde. You may not get desired result first time.
I would also recommend you use an intensive treatment afterwards as it will dry your hair out.
